another mushroom

The day after I published that post about all the cool mushrooms we've been finding, we discovered this behemoth at Naiya's school.  Three days later (when I finally remembered to bring my camera) it's a much subtler shade of orange and starting to crack in places but impressive nonetheless.  At first we both thought it was a garden sculpture and were looking for the accompanying gnome.  Turned out it was real.  We think there must be a whole village of fairies somewhere nearby.

For a sense of the scale of this thing,
here's a shot with Naiya's hand in it!


  1. Wow! I actually thought it was a hamburger bun for a second. :)

  2. beautyful! Amanita muscaria, look there every year, one should come back! we had one or two in the same place every year at our last home way up north!

  3. Welcome Erin! Thanks for the mushroom identification. We WILL look there again next year. It's right next to our school's back parking lot. It's a testament to the wonder and respect of the Waldorf children that two weeks later that thing is STILL there! I checked out your blog. Beautiful photography. Thanks for stopping by. :)
